...Spectacular Summer Weather the Next Couple of Days...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Sat Aug 20 2016

Very pleasant late summer weather is in store the remainder of the
weekend. Clouds will continue to decrease from the west into this
evening, and the scattered showers will end across far south
central Missouri in the wake of the exiting cold front.

A noticeably cooler and drier airmass will overspread the area
tonight and Sunday as Canadian high pressure builds southward.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Sat Aug 20 2016

After a quite start to the week a more active weather pattern
will return Tuesday and persist much of next week.

Increasing warm air and moisture advection will result in
scattered showers and thunderstorms as early as late Monday night
but more so on Tuesday.

A cold front will drop southward into the region later Wednesday
as another upper level trough tracks across the northern tier of
the U.S. This will bring additional scattered showers and storms
mainly Wednesday night.

A temporary break in rain chances may occur Thursday and Friday
before the next chance arrives Saturday. Overall timing of rain
chances for later next week remain somewhat uncertain.

Overall temperatures will be near to slightly below normal as we
head toward the end of August.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon)

Pilots flying in and out of the southwest Missouri airports will
be dealing with MVFR ceilings this afternoon. A frontal system
near the Arkansas and Missouri border was creating widespread
ceilings below 3000 ft.

This front was also triggering some showers over southwest
Missouri, and will likely impact the Branson airport. Therefore we
inserted a tempo group for some rain and reduced visibilities.

VFR conditions for all airports are expected this evening.

Safe Travels.
